Do I really have to have a plan?

Successful people do the best they can with who they are, with what they have from wherever they are. They know that they will learn as they go, opportunities will appear, and coincidences will happen.

It is only in hindsight, I believe, that they look back and say they had a plan. Even Steve Jobs said. “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

If you want something… start. You don’t have to see the entire staircase to take the first step.

What step will you take this week in pursuit of a dream?
